Recoverpoint journal compression

Hi,

we have moved from an older full RP license to the new RP/SE with 2 new VNX systems.

We used journal compression with the old RP license and as we wanted to change to RP license to the RP/SE we noticed that journal compression is not longer supported with this version.

We used the old license and now we have to switch, but what happens with the compressed journal volumes?

Are they decompressed and we need more space for them or is only the new data stored in uncompressed format?

Check out RecoverPoint 4.0 Release notes top of page 5.  RP/SE doesn't support Journal Compression..

Re: Recoverpoint journal compression

As an alternative to journal compression you should consider snapshot consolidation.
